Researcher Spotlight

Meet Maria.

I am Maria TorresArango, Ph.D. student in Materials Science and Engineering. I am interested in creating solutions for sustainability and smart living. My research focuses on nano materials for energy harvesting and recovery, solar cell devices, and thermo-electric materials. I use non-toxic and water-compatible materials to ensure the highest levels of safety from the laboratory scale, to the processing stage, to the user, to the environment when the device is disposed of or recycled. I consider research to be of paramount importance. In industry or academia, research is that common place where fundamentals meet applications for actual solutions to engineering problems, and I am excited to be part of it.
